Nick Young and Keona Green are definitely one of our favorite couples at VH1 Couples Retreat, so we were excited to chat with anyone other than Swaygi P about their time on the show.
Nick Young and Keona Green have been together for almost twenty years. That’s a lot of history.
We chatted with the former NBA star about learning new things about Keona while taping their ‘Couples Retreat’ and also talked about how passionate the athlete was about becoming a reality star in front of the camera.
“We just wanted to talk to someone, get away from the kids, and he and I needed a time, we just had to be close to the other couple and see what they were doing and put everything on the table,” said the couple who joined the Young Reality series. Says about the decision, now in its second season.
Nick Young talks about shedding tears in ‘Couples Retreat’
From the first episode, we can see that Young has been opened in a way that we have not seen from star athletes in the past.
“I don’t know if I’m ready to watch it,” Young said of his on-camera emotional moment. It’s over for me, almost everyone sees it. It’s cool though. They have to tear me apart. “
Nick Young Meme enjoys being famous
Since she is one of the most famous faces in the social media world of gifs and memes, we asked her if she was afraid to have more memes thanks to the moments on the show.
Young says he’s not really worried because he’s become famous in memes.
“People don’t know I play basketball sometimes. They’ll say, ‘Aren’t you that meme guy?’ But it’s cool. I use it too! “
Nick Young talks about hearing the hard truth from partner Keona
Young also opened up about one of the more difficult moments in the first episode, where Keona admits that at some point he wasn’t really happy when he let Nick believe. He said he was glad he was able to get things out of his chest when it was hard to hear.
“I was shocked but I was glad she was able to express how she felt,” Young said of the moment. “I thought he was brave enough to tell me how he really felt. I gave her a lot so I knew she had some feelings, but I’m glad she was able to really talk and give up some things. “
Young says the couple’s therapy may be too emotional for her in the end, but since the couple’s retreat, the couple has made a concerted effort to make more date nights and spend time away from the kids. Young added that their sex life has improved since the show, but added that Keona “doesn’t want any more kids,” so it has reduced some things.
Some of Nick’s weakest moments on the show include talking about his kids and the fear of portraying him as a bad dad. The father of three has talked about spoiling his children and shared that all three of them could somehow get him and Keona to their bed at night.
“I love my kids, they’re like my world,” Young told Bossip. “I think we need to portray more fathers in a positive way. I am always there for my kids. I try my best to give them what they need. I plunder them, but I need to plunder them. I was devastated, I was a kid. “
